Who invented flirting ?......fun verse

He dreams of touch and of foreplay
as he passes through
a woman's scent

Of lazy afternoons and the sounds of
her laughter and giggling
and those sighs

Just why can't we love and touch
as if there were no rules

To touch one and not all
seems so wrong

The variety of sounds of souls
of bodies and beauties

To each woman a separate but
equal attraction

Is it always all women for a mans
imagination and one man
for hers

Maybe just maybe that's why
God invented flirting

Or was it the devil?

Or was it woman?

I read this twice 'ahorseback' as I reminisced of the truths laced through the stanzas. Nice! And, thank you for the memories brought to life.

Nice! Was it written in your dreams? The sky is the limit on the lower astral plane.

hey Ed. I can relate to your thinking in this poem. Well done! But I beg to reserve my answer to the questions at the end, for fear of my well being either at the hands of satan or my wife...lol. Voted up.

I had a Hub on this topic and didn't reconstruct it after a Hub catastrophe made it disappear---not intended to grace HubPages, I presume---just vanished! Glad you are getting some comments from your effort.
